Unilever is going beyond labelling requirements by disclosing fragrance ingredients online in Europe, starting with France and the UK.
The transparency initiative launched in 2017, saw the introduction of a new “What’s in our Products” section on Unilever websites, to provide information beyond the label such as Unilever’s approach to developing safe products, explanations of ingredient types and support for people with allergies to find suitable products.
Individual product information will now be updated to include for home care and beauty & personal care products (down to 0.01% of the product formulation) along with details about how they are used and the role they play in creating the fragrances that people know and love.
Unilever’s Chief Research and Development Officer, David Blanchard said; “We know how important fragrances are to people - they want products that make them look good, feel good and smell good. We’re excited to take the next step in our transparency journey, delivering on our promise to give people the information they need to choose the right products for them. People want to know more about fragrance ingredients and how we create scents for the brands they love. We’re happy to be making this information available online across Europe in 2018.”
